I really enjoy the versatility of putting items on the roof. Here are some recent pics.







I have a flat utility Bajarack on the cab and Yakima bars on the truck topper.

The yakima bars hold a section of ABS pipe with Kodiak tent poles inside, two aluminum Flex One Folding Chairs, and a Road Shower.

The Bajarack holds my 75 Watt solar array, Three burner Camp Chef Expedition stove (90K BTU!), BBQ Box, a 10x10 popup canopy, and dual band ham antenna

In this picture we were on our way out of the campground.



Traveled over 1,000 miles round trip with no issues.

Looking at the baja rack utility (low profile) version. Does it come with light mounting locations for the front and rear? I kinda tossing the idea of getting a rack again. For all who own the low profile did yours have the lights mounting holes? And for the owners of the standard rack, is baja's light housing they sale that connects to the rack worth the money($200)??

Light tabs were special order item. $15.00 for each tab. I use mine to mount antennas.

Finally got around to mounting my roof rack. Came out good. Next is to make mounts for my fuel cans, get shovel and axe mounts and finally some led bars for the left, right and rear


It's nice to be able to use the over head crane in the hangar. Made life a lot easier.

Use the OEM rack as side rails. Thule crossbars. Already had the Thule CBs and wanted the clearance b/w the roof and 'stuff' on top provided w/this set up. Mainly extras for trips, camping etc go up there. Also wanted to utilize a fairing. Anything heavier (give or take +100lbs) goes in the bed or on a trailer (eventually).
